Some people sweat more than others. Although they are bothered by this, they often just shrug it off, instead avoiding light-colored clothing, changing clothes a few times each day, and other tactics to prevent others from seeing their sweat stains. These people may not realize that their excessive sweating is an actual condition known as hyperhidrosis. Although it is linked to certain underlying conditions, hyperhidrosis commonly affects perfectly healthy people.Previous treatment options for excessive underarm sweating included clinical strength antiperspirants, BOTOX injections, and surgery to remove the sweat glands. Each of these options had the disadvantage of being expensive, and many were hesitant to undergo surgery due to its associated risks and recovery. The board-certified dermatologists at Advanced Dermatology, PC, are now offering miraDry to treat excessive sweating without surgery.
miraDry is an innovative new treatment option for excessive underarm sweating. It uses electromagnetic energy to eliminate the sweat glands without surgery or scarring. Since each patient sweats a different amount, miraDry has customizable settings. Two treatment sessions roughly an hour each are recommended for best results. During treatment, the underarms are numbed and the patient is awake.
After miraDry, patients can immediately return to work and other regular activities. Exercise is to be avoided for the firsts several days following treatment. Most patients notice a dramatic decrease in their sweating immediately after treatment. Since the sweat glands do not grow back after elimination, miraDry is a long-lasting solution for excessive sweating.
